Caitlyn Jenner Coached 1 Of Alec Baldwin’s Kids In Track
As part of the famous Kardashian family, it’s no surprise that Jenner has a lot of famous friends. Actor Alec Baldwin is one of them. Jenner spoke about their relationship in 2019 when she participated in Baldwin’s roast on Comedy Central. “Actually, I’ve known Alec for a long time and consider him family,” she said in an article on UPI.
You probably know Caitlyn Jenner as a reality television star and LGBTQ activist. You may not know that her claim to fame came long before either of those two terms even existed. The celebrity is an accomplished Olympic athlete from the 1970s. Her impressive resume also includes author, actor, commentator, and coach.
The tall, athletically built actor and model was born to Alec Baldwin and his first wife, actor Kim Basinger in 1995. She has appeared in the films, Grudge Match and A Dark Foe, and was the international face of Guess fashion in 2017, according to IMDb. Most of the people present at the roast had worked with Alec Baldwin, but Jenner’s relationship with him was a mystery until Ireland Baldwin’s reveal.
Teen Vogue related that Kendall Jenner also coached his own daughter in middle school. “[My dad] coached me for high jump and stuff, and I was the best high jump in my class,” Kendall Jenner told Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night show.
“Do you know what it’s like having a gold medal athlete as your track coach? Blake, you get it,” she said to NBA player Blake Griffin of the Brooklyn Nets. “You’ve disappointed a Jenner that’s completely out of your league,” Baldwin joked, referring to Griffin’s brief relationship with Kendall Jenner.
“The only one who said verbatim everything horrible that was handed to them was my daughter Ireland. They handed her a script, and you could just tell that she put her golf shoes on and just tap-danced on my face.”
Baldwin weighs in on his daughter’s scathing performance
Baldwin sat down with talk radio host Howard Stern who couldn’t believe Baldwin actually agreed to take a public hit like that. The event was for charity after all, and Baldwin’s willingness to laugh at himself was refreshing. He found his daughter’s turn at roasting him particularly noteworthy.
Not long after the event, Closer Weekly reported that the father and daughter have a “normal” relationship. “Of course, it’s damaged as a result of high-conflict divorce,” Baldwin said. “There are scars, there are echoes of that. It’s tough. But I get along great with my daughter.” In February 2020, Ireland Baldwin told Daily Mail that she thought the publicity following the voicemail incident made it seem worse than it was.
